#B04eSports: Two wins in two v two games

The home straight in the Virtual Bundesliga (VBL). On Tuesday evening, the #B04eSports players played Eintracht Braunschweig and then FC Köln in the third last double matchday. With a 6-3 win against the team from Lower Saxony and a 4-4 draw in the derby, Leverkusen remain in sixth place in the North West division.

World champion Kai ‘DETO’ Wollin kicked off the evening on the consoles. Playing on PlayStation 4, the experienced #B04eSports player clashed with Braunschweig's Lukas 'H00DY' Hennig. 'Deto' got off to a great start and was leading 3-0 shortly after half-time – the virtual youth player Yannick Schlößer scored three goals (12', 41', 51'). Leverkusen then conceded two goals (67', 90') but were able to register the first three points in the end.

In the following individual game on Xbox, Fabian 'B04_DUBZJE' De Cae lost 3-0 to Eintracht eSports player Dominik 'DOMINIK' Schwerdtfeger. That meant the 2 v 2 would be the decider. For the Black and Reds, youngster Marc 'MARC_LDW23' Landwehr played alongside 'DETO' – and the duo turned out to be a winning partnership. Thanks to goals from the virtual Samed Onur (19'), Schlößer (31') and Moussa Diaby (82') there was not only a win in the 2 v 2 game but also an overall 6-3 win against Braunschweig.

Landwehr on PS4

After the games against Eintracht, the second opponent of the evening was FC Köln. The new Bayer 04 eSports player 'MARC_LDW23' played on PlayStation 4 in the 1 v 1 against Tim 'THESTRXNGER' Katnawatos. The 18-year-old took the lead before half-time but ended drawing 1-1 after 90 virtual minutes due to an equaliser scored by FC Köln on 55 minutes.

‘B04_DUBZJE’ narrowly lost 2-1 on Xbox against FC opponent Michael ‘PHENOMENO’ Gherman. All three goals were scored in the first half. As 'DETO' and 'MARC_LDW23' won 2-0 in the 2 v 2 game, they secured a 4-4 draw against third-placed FC Köln.

Gladbach and Bremen

Next Tuesday, 2 March, the #B04eSports players have the first games against Borussia Mönchengladbach at 18.00 CET. The later opponents at 20.00 CET are Werder Bremen. The last clash in this year's VBL Club Championship will be played on 9 March against Hannover 96 and that could be a crucial game for the Bayer 04 eSports players.
